Belgium: Immigrants account for 40% of abortions

40% of women who undergo an abortion in Belgium are immigrants, according to a study by KU Leuven. These are especially young women from Central and Eastern Europe as well as West, Central and Eastern Africa.

17,314 abortions were performed in 2005, of which 6,200 were for women younger than 24.

Flemish parliament member Vera Jans says it is "A striking trend that the part of immigrant girls and women is so high".

27.5% of the immigrant women who had an abortion were first generation immigrant who had been in Belgium less than five years. Many of them wrote on their application that they live in precarious circumstances.
